Grain Commentary

  • Wheat: Down $5 ($460 to $470/tonne). Barley: Down $50 ($315 to $325/tonne). Maize: Steady ($515 to $525/tonne Canola). Meal: Steady ($450 to $460/tonne).
  • It was another solid week of planting progress in the lower parts of NSW and Victoria, with the least advanced parts of Victoria now around 50% complete. Most of the state should complete planting in the coming fortnight.
  • Losses in barley prices have been the biggest moves over the past week. It had been expected, for some time, that sellers of barley would come back to the market later this year. However, clarity around the impact China’s potential tariffs will now be sought before any such move back into the market.
  • Wheat prices have also drifted backwards. With many grain growing areas in Victoria and NSW having had the best start to the season in several years, the outlook for wheat prices for the remainder of the season points to further downside.

Notes:

Change in price is the change since the last report. Prices are estimates based on delivery to dairy farms with allowance for freight, storage, and marketing costs, but exclusive of GST. Wheat prices are for the relevant stockfeed wheat available in a region (ASW, AGP, SFW1 or FED1) and F1 for barley.
